"I am most grateful to Kate for quarrying, shaping and polishing these prayers so that we can all use them"

HEARD ON, SEEN IN, FOUND AT
Prayers become real when they are carved from experience. In this book Kate has brought a lived experience to God, and the result is a collection of prayers that should help people at all stages of the journey with cancer.
Honest, hopeful and – yes – joyful in the face of darkness and pain, it points us to the cross, and to the life eternal that the cross has won for us all.
I am most grateful to Kate for quarrying, shaping and polishing these prayers so that we can all use them.
Sharing a cancer journey with someone you love and adore is heartbreaking, exhausting and, at times, overwhelming. I travelled this journey with my brave and beautiful daughter Tasha.
At every turn, with every step, Kate’s prayers supported us. Her words gave us strength and hope and reminded us that our Lord was always with us.
I know that the prayers Kate has collected in this beautiful book will help so many others on their personal cancer journey.
Being diagnosed with cancer is a very personal and unique experience. No two people will have the same experience, no two people will react in the same way, no two families will deal with it in the same way.
One thing however is constant and sure and that is the love of God. Being upheld by others in prayer, knowing we can come to God in our darkest hours with our deepest fears, longings and hopes can be transformative.
The prayers in this book are hard won. I commend them to you.
